Disappointed with Macanudo Cafe

It tasted like burning leaves with no taste.
A stale taste. So maybe I need a medium strength cigar or something. Luckily I only bought 5 of them

    Disappointed with Macanudo? Um, yeah.

    Macanudo's are great cigars to give to people who don't smoke cigars. They can light them up and pretend that they're smoking a real cigar, and those who don't know better will think so, too.

    Glad to hear you understand.
    What do you personally recommend for a tasty cigar?

    I have decided to infuse those tasteless Cafe's with something to give them flavor. No other choice but let them sit unused

    I’ll add to Mr. Yak’s point

    Check out the “What are you smoking” threads. But sometimes mine suck.

    Yeah, that's what I was wondering.

    More old school cigars will mean more old school flavor. Time to try something new.

    Well, we all started somewhere...I remember when RyJ was my idea of a good cigar, which they were, compared the the A&C Grenadiers and Swisher Sweets that I'd been smoking. Ah, to be young again, and all that it entailed.

    Most of us did indeed start with that ilk. It was the 'asking for advice' part and then ignoring it that made it turn sour.

    Mac Inspirado Red and 1968 are departures from the typical mild/blah that many are used to when they think about Macanudo. I still stand by what I said, they are both good cigars. A lot of others feel the same about the Mac Inspirado Reds based on reviews. It's not your grandpa's cigar to be sure. I don't like many of their blends either but when they get it right, they get it right. I wouldn't lay a bunch down as I have because they taste chitty.

    I don't like most of the La Gloria Cubana lines either but the La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reserva is an exception for that brand as well. Sometimes you get a winner.

    There are also plenty of "boutique" brands that many touted and rave about insessantly that I find just meh, mostly about flashy bands, boxes, and gimmicks. Point being, if you like the smoke, it's a good cigar. Flavor is more important than pedigree. Taste is subjective. One man's meh is another man's bliss. :smiley:

    Other than the one I recommended to you in my previous post above? Give that one a try, see how you like it, then go back and pay attention to the advice given to you by others here, in this thread, that you started.

    Check out anything from AJ Fernandez. For the most part inexpensive and a ton of options.
